Fremantle Oval is pretty relaxed, you can just walk into the change rooms and use the loo. I’m heading to the Fremantle Markets on Sunday to buy some macarons, I might have to wander across the road and check out the game.

You should offer a macaron and a cup of tea to Tom McDonald to see if he's capable of petty amusements.

Updated team:

In: Grierson

Out: Mifsud (omitted)

 

Also apparently the team is staying west between the Freo game and the next one against Collingwood in Alice Springs.

If Brisbane get Carlton (pack of flooders) here, we're on top of the ladder.

Great news as it cuts out one long haul flight at a critical time of 3 games in 13 days.

The Perth weather today isn't too bad with the temp being in the high 20's for the game.  So by staying in Perth we should be quite fresh for the Alice game next Saturday.  Unfortunately, the weather there will be in the very high 30's.   

Win today and we will a game and decent percentage clear on top of the ladder:)

For those interested in seeing today's game it is on 7Mate

Can anyone extrapolate on Mifsud’s omission? I know she was quiet last week, but is she coming off injury or something? I thought she was meant to be a weapon.

She played an excellent game last week after being omitted in week 1.  Can be  real weapon and too good to just leave out. 

At a guess - Mifsud is omitted due to match-ups or to keep her fresh for the Alice game vs Pies 6 days and a long flight there. 

Player management will be really important for the next 3 games (Freo, Pies, Lions) over 13 days to ensure we are fresh for the run home (Carlton, Bulldogs).  Lions, Carlton and Bulldogs will be 8 point games so no chance to 'rest' players then.

Yes sorry my bad, got the weeks muddled up. Indeed it may be player management, let’s hope it’s a shrewd move and not just poor form

Sorry, I didn't mean to correct your post.  Yes, agreed lets hope its not poor form. 

 

 

 

On a different note and confirming @Dees_In_Octoberposting that the team is staying in Perth.  On Wednesday they fly to Alice to do some community work leading up to the Friday game.  http://www.afl.com.au/news/2018-02-18/aflw-melbournes-massive-road-trip

Its an all round really good move by the club to freshen the players and repay the faith and commitment to our club sponsor NT.  Plus a rare chance for the team to get away for some bonding.

What a load of rubbish! The Pies v Freo game was shown live on 7 into Melbourne last week.

Seems like Carlton and Collingwood are the only ones to get games live on 7.

Doesn't help when all the Freo players are just about in our forward fifty.
